Traveling in a century old train. Booking early is necessary especially for decent seats in first class - as only few are available. Rack and pinion drive on slopes. Looks to be diesel-steam locomotive pulling/pushing the bogies. Worth the experience to see the hills from the train.

Been there on this Monday with my College buddies as a bike trip.you have to stop ur vehicle 1km before the falls and walk along the tea estate to reach it.The water is cold and not too deep so even the novice can enjoy swimming without fear.

It was a beautiful park in steps with lots of diffrent & very old flora & fauna. Very nicely maintained & all greenery & nature around you transports you to another world with small beautiful trails leading you to scenic points. Definitely worth a visit . Dont miss it at all.

the peak stands out from the plains featuring Coimbatore/lower bhavani dam (mostly) at a distant. the view can be seen from kodanad view point ahead of Kotagiri. the road to the view point is great especially the drive passing through the Kotagiri tea estate...worth a visit

Tucked away on a nondescript hillside, and away from the regular traffic, this estate & factory lie down-slope from the Coonoor-Kotagiri district road, about 2 km from Sim's Park.
The factory is open to visitors with a prior tie-up.
Good for a 30-min detour, if you have the time.
Can buy factory-fresh tea.

Mr. John Sullivan who was the British Collector of Coimbatore in 1817 contributed a lot for the development of the Nilagiris and he deserves even a better memorial. The John Sullivan Memorial at Kannerimukku near Kottagiri has a good collection of photos of the past Kottagiri and the vehicles used then. Though we don't have much to see here, the history says that Mr. John Sullivan contributed a lot for the development of Nigiris. He was a great man with a vision and while seeing this memorial, I was just visualizing the days he was there.

One of the typical places to visit when you're in / around ooty. The destination isn't as good as the journey.

At 1630 on 15th Nov we zeroed on Dodda aka Longwood Shola of 116 hectares , an immaculate tropical evergreen forest of stunted vegetation found only in the southern part of the Western Ghats , in the immediate vicinity of Kotagiri . More than fifteen villages around Aravenu depend on this Shola as it is the prime source of water to them .
The forest harbours eighty species of birds , Barking deer , Bonnet macaque , Indian gaur , Indian giant squirrels , Nilgiri marten , etc . As Vaijayanti could not walk much , we did not venture deep in the woods . Still we could spot Barking deer , Bonnet macaque , Malabar pied hornbill , Spotted myna and few Indian gaurs .
This is a very good place for trekking as it has very scenic trekking paths .
